The Elves and the Shoemaker
A tale of magic and mischief
Cast & Crew
Once, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor, so poor they couldn’t even afford to buy presents for each other. With no wood for their fire and only one piece of leather left to make a final pair of shoes, there was little cheer in the Shoemakers’ shop. But that night, just as the snow drifted down outside and the clock struck midnight, little Elves decided to spread a little bit of magic which would make a whole lot of difference.
Live music, puppetry, physical storytelling and a bit of Elf magic combine to tell this classic tale.
